I Was Cleaning My Oven Using Easy Off Over Cleaner And It Dripped On The Floor And It Stained Over Night. How Can I Remove The Rust Like Stains That Have Appeared On The Linoleum Floor?

I smeared tooth paste all over the spotted area and left it over night. It didn't remove the spots. I then moistened the paste with water and proceeded to scrape the spots off the linoleum with the tip of a knife. The spots, for the most part, have been removed. Be careful not to scrape the linoleum more than you have to. I am not sure if the spots and the scraping caused any significant damage. Time will tell. At least the linoleum doesn't look like the scene of a crime scene anymore. I'll never use Easy Off again. It isn't that easy! (Yes, I did lay down newspapers. Just didn't know that I had to Dexter-ize the area around the stove.)

We have tried Ann's bleach suggestion, it still requires a lot of elbow grease but it does work, suggest opening a window or two and do the cleaning in a well vented room. Thank you Ann

Stained my white colored kitchen tile flooring and looking for a solution for over 1 month and every professional telling me there was nothing I can do.  

I came up with a solution to sprinkle a thick layer of comet powder cleanser over the huge orange/brown stain, then sprinkled a little water over it and sprayed Fantastik Extra Strength spray over it.. 

So it looked moist. Left it on the floor for 2 hours. Then wiped it right off. It was gone. You'll be thanking me.

I tried using Comet paste and left it like suggested but it lightened up but didn't come off. So I sprinkled Comet over the orange stain again then sprayed straight bleach over it and came off in 20 minutes!! Thank God. Some spots may need to be repeated but let it sit for 10 minutes instead.

I would suspect that you can not.  More than likely the linoleum is permnantly damaged.  I will remind you, however, if the damage is large enough that your insurance will pay to have it replaced or repaired.  You will have to meet a deductable which is the reason I said - large enough.  It may not be big enough that you will want to be out the deductable.
thanked the writer.

I had this problem and found that it was easily solved by wiping pure bleach on the linoleum and then waiting five minutes.

WARNING: First make sure no traces of other chemicals are left on the floor, then make sure you have very good ventilation. If bleach comes in contact with oven cleaner, it may produce highly toxic mustard gas. I have not researched the safety of this procedure and you are responsible for researching any risks prior to attempting it. I am not responsibility if you die.

Ann_blurt is more than correct, be careful mixing chemicals. A man in our town just put his entre family in the hospital trying to clean and unclog a toilet at the same time. The 2 chemicals he used produced toxic fumes.

My brother paid someone to clean his oven and ended up with dark brown spots all over his floor. The spots seemed to be burned in and scrubbing with soap and water didn't help at all. He rents his apartment so he was looking at having to spend close to 300.00 to replace his flooring. I found this forum and tried the bleach method and it worked perfectly. I just wanted to say THANKS. It saved him a bunch of time and money...not to mention stress.

You can also use a S.O.S pad cleaner and scrub the floor as well, it does take sometime but it works lol that what I found out today .
